. hope needs a story, a narrative. here is what is going on in this country. president obama now is speaking more forcefully about what he wants to do it and against smoking out those who are obstructing. this is really wonky. anyway, i think one of the most exciting things are the movements of our times. i closed this book out before occupy. i wrote about wisconsin. our correspondent was there for 57 days. that was about occupying the state house. occupy has become a brand. it has also become e ncampments. soon it will need to be more than a space and a place. it will need to go to state houses, occupy banks, occupy congress. take the movement energy into those stairs -- spheres with the ideas matter of the heart of occupy. >> winter is coming. cities like san francisco and oakland and other cities are closing down the encampments and chasing people off. you can drive 90 miles from davis and pepper spray. it is hard to maintain people's attention for long periods of time. i am wondering -- should they be occupying the supreme court?

president obama first took office. we are currently witnessing the fastest deficit reduction in this country since the end of world war ii. the alleged big spending liberal barack obama has already signed into law approximately $2.4 trillion deficit reduction measures over the next decade. and that could be higher, except for the deficit peacocks on the other side of the aisle in congress keep balking at ideas like cap and trade and the dream act and closing tax loopholes, all of which would reduce the debt and the deficit. and all of which are policies that republicans used to like until president barack obama said that he liked them too, and then they turned against their own ideas. even the dreaded obama care was one of the biggest debt reduction proposals considered in washington since the clinton era. and republicans hate that with the heat of a thousand suns. so some talk the talk, and others walk the walk. all right. there is a school of thought that says that deficit reduction shouldn't actually even be a national priority right now, as we slowly recover from the most brutal recessio
